Since being unceremoniously fired from the FBI, former director James Comey has turned into quite the arrogant ass on social media. Using his tweets and Instas sparingly, he has come up with a formula sprinkled with Bible verses and cryptic messages to promote himself as some kind of holy warrior, destined to triumph over the forces of evil in the White House.
We haven’t liked Comey since he gave that speech exonerating Hillary Clinton and we like him less with every passing day. This guy was instrumental in the Deep State plot to overturn the results of the election and we’re not entirely convinced that simply being relived of his duties was a stiff enough punishment for his misdeeds. Maybe he let Hillary off the hook because he knew he was guilty of much, much worse.
But seriously, just look at Comey’s last tweet of 2017: “Here’s hoping 2018 brings more ethical leadership, focused on the truth and lasting values. Happy New Year, everybody.”
More ethical leadership? Really? This from the guy who stood by while the Obama Justice Department made a mockery out of due process with illegal spying into the Trump campaign? The same Justice Department that turned the Hillary Clinton email investigation into a political fiasco, with Comey a willing and active participant in the miscarriage of justice? The same Comey who leaked like a sieve when Trump took office and worked against the president until he was thrown out like yesterday’s garbage? HE’S talking to us about ethical leadership? What a joke.
Firing James Comey certainly did not make life easier for President Trump and history will yet decide if it was his greatest decision or his worst mistake. But whatever the future holds for the Russia investigation, there can be no doubt about one thing: Comey fully deserved to be let go. He allowed himself and his agency to become a pawn of the Democratic Party, chasing “intelligence” like the ridiculous dossier all the way into oblivion. Now his buddy Mueller has taken the reins, leaving Comey to tweet from his high horse whenever he has a free moment. Well, great. We’re sure that the Resistance appreciates every single one of his golden nuggets of rich wit.
We, however, appreciate the subtler niceties of law and order, and Comey’s absence will make it that much easier for the Trump Justice Department to restore it. That is, if Jeff Sessions ever wakes up to the insanity surrounding him and decides to get serious about protecting a White House under siege by leftists.
